Do you like to win? OF COURSE YOU DO! That’s why we in Work To Win have set out to make a soundtrack to your winning, by making songs that bring a smile to your face and get stuck in your head for days! We’d like to consider our sound something unique and different (and others have already agreed!), but our influences can basically be thrown into a mixing pot and bits and pieces of each can be heard in our songs. The breezy, airy sounds of 90′s acoustic alternative-rock tracks (Matchbox Twenty, Counting Crows, Dave Matthews Band), the energy and drive of 90′s pop-punk (Weezer, Green Day, blink-182), the piano-based creativity of modern day alternative-pop (fun., The Hush Sound, Jack’s Mannequin), and the melodic/harmonic sense of classic 60′s rock (The Beatles, The Who, The Beach Boys).
Almost There, a rock trio hailing from the Jersey shore, is a band on a mission to change the world with their music. The band consists of Eddie Soles (guitar/vocals), Zach Sicherman (bass/vocals), and Phill Serzan (drums). Their most recent EP, “Silver Lake,” is a three song CD recorded after the band won “The Artist Discovery Contest,” a national competition with over 9,000 submissions sponsored by Myspace Records. The band was flown to Los Angeles to record at Pulse Recording with engineer Ryan Williams (30 Seconds to Mars, Pink) and producer Jon Pikus (Weezer, Sherwood). Songs from the latest release are already getting airplay all over NJ as well as creating a lot of online buzz. With two other EP’s under their belt, both produced by Jesse Cannon (Say Anything, Saves the Day), they have been obtaining a large amount of local success. They’ve recently shared the stage with such acts as Travie McCoy, 3OH!3, Creed, Saving Abel, Cobra Starship, American Bang, and Badfish. They have played at some legendary venues including PNC Bank Arts Center, The Stone Pony, Starland Ballroom, The Trocadero Theatre, The Bitter End, Sullivan Hall, and many more. All three members are great friends with endless determination and a strong musical chemistry. With hard work and persistence, they hope to reach as many people as they can with their music. Their latest EP is available now on iTunes and Amazon.com.
City Line compromises very little in their quest to achieve a sound that not even they can adequately identify. Comprised of the bastard sons of a notorious, working-class town, chasing the ghosts of rock and roll past, they set their sights solely on playing songs that are unabashed in their passion and entirely too loud. Fronted by the chatty and charismatic Mike Mitchell, City Line has yet to find exactly what they’ve sought out, but then again, the band isn’t necessarily sure what that might be. One thing is known, though, they hope to destroy a hotel room in a postal district near you in the not-to-distant future. So, please, take listen, take heed, bring friends, and make your self a drink, because City Line is praying for a raucous, bumpy ride.

Formed in 2008, Yellow Day Union started off as a staple in the growing Orlando Pop-Punk scene. With most shows reaching capacity, the band started to branch out to other markets.
In March 2009 the band had their first release, titled “Yellow Day Union”. The album has had much success and gained the attention of many fans worldwide. With songs full of angst, romance, pressing social issues and raw emotion, the band proved they are much more than just a pop-punk band.
